Re: On a Personal Note

Lisa Mossie (Bluftooni, and Times Herald columnist)commented on my last post, and reminded me (thanks, Lisa!) of one of my favorite songs, which really cheered me up.

Bill, sorry to hear about your layoff. That certainly does suck--especially at this time of year. Not that it wouldn't suck at any time of the year, but being laid off at Christmas bites the big one. And the post election doldrums are everywhere.

Tough times now, but tough times, like good times, don't last forever. This too shall pass.
Well, her post reminded me of George Harrison's"All Things Must Pass"... the lyrics are poignant to my situation right now and are posted below. I must say, I played the song just a few minutes ago and I feel much better now.

"All Things Must Pass"

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
Its not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving
Its not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
None of life's strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
Its not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

H/T to my Dad, who turned me on to this music when I was a wee lad of about 6 or 7 years old...It's been with me and a major part of my life ever since.

Here's my favorite rendition of the song, sung by Sir Paul McCartney in 2002, from the DVD, "Concert For George":
